I've made a quick research about profits and costs in america:
On earth there is about 2.5 billions humans who have less than 2$ to live. I calculated that we need around 10$ a day to EAT only, so it's about 25
billions $/day to feed them all. I do not include the techniques and facilities that have could teach them to become autosufisant thereby decreasing
the overall global cost for their survival.
The U.S. military budget is 771.1 billions $ for year 2014, 166billions $ for China and 90 billions $ for Russia. It's 2.8 billions/day(USD) spent
ONLY for military stuff and unfortunately we all know that they probably spend more than what their budget says. The Federal Reserve sent a record
$88.4 billion in profits to the U.S. Treasury in 2012.As a group, the Big 5 Canadian banks -- Royal Bank (TSX:RY), TD Bank (TSX:TD), Scotiabank, Bank
of Montreal (TSX:BMO) and CIBC (TSX:CM) -- earned $29.25 billion in their 2013 financial year
Canada 2012, about 15 100 prisonners was in Jail, every day the prisoners costs the government 322$ (CAD) to be fed,have warm water everyday and have
somewhere to live. It's 4.9 millions $/year for criminals
. USA 2011, The average cost of incarcerating an American prisoner varies from state
to state. Some states, like Indiana have managed to keep prices low at around $14,000 per inmate. While states like New York pay around $60,000 to
keep its citizens behind bars.
I could have done more research about profits made by big corporations but I'm sure that you guys will understand what I mean, it's so unfair that
some people can swim in a pool of 1000$ bills and on the other hand some people can't even eat/drink fresh food/water once a day.We are already too
many in the middle class and that is why the elite don't want the poor getting richer, they don't want competition.If we join all the annual
profits made by corporations we could easily eliminate hunger in the world.
They want to populate Mars but they can't even populate correctly the Earth..
